Who am I?
Until August 2016, I was Director of Ministerial Business and Parliamentary Accountability at the UK Department of Health (DH) and Chair of the DH Staff Health and Wellbeing programme. After training to teach MBSR and MBCT at Bangor and Oxford, I personally introduced Mindfulness to over 3,000 colleagues at DH and across the UK Civil Service. I contributed to the Mindful Nation UK report and continue as an external Advisor to the UK Mindfulness Initiative (MI). I was a member of the Board of Trustees for Oxford Mindfulness Foundation (OMF) as from 2015-2020 and I continue to serve as HR & Operations Manager and as a Mindfulness Teacher, Trainer and Supervisor.
